The first single off Steve Angello’s upcoming album is out and it is as awesome as one would expect. The superb vocals and radio ready production destine this song to commercial success, much like how “Don’t You Worry Child” was. It’s not a huge surprise for there to be a song or two from the album that is catered to the mainstream and this is one of them. Even so, it’s a great track and a smart way to reintroduce the world to Steve Angello, the solo artist.

It is remarkable what Arias has been able to put together in these past two years. Tunes like “Majoris”, “Andromeda” and “Solar” are all one of a kind incredible and you can add his first single of 2014, “Deepfield” to that mix as well. The first vocal track from the Parian in a MINUTE, Arias brings that signature big progressive sound that s found in so few records today. Even bigger for Arias is his record on Size Records, “Footsteps” with Greg Ceronne, which Steve Angello has been playing heavily ever since Ultra. Watch out for the renaissance of Arias.
Beatport: Arias – Deepfield

When I posted the original club mix of this song back in December, I was extremely fond it. It was my favorite song for quite some time and still to this day do I think it is one of the most under-appreciated progressive house tracks. Mako is a duo who has done big things last year and have more big things coming this year, most notably a collaboration with Steve Angello, so if there were a pair of producers I could trust to remix this it would be my all time favorite dudes and my tight, tight bros, The Chainsmokers. Mako are also two guys who are capable of doing justice to the original and they did with their remix. The song starts off well with the vocals being placed at the forefront, but as soon as the synth build comes in you’ll fall in love. Support the guys by purchasing it on Beatport and get ready for the inevitable release of “Children Of The Wild”, their song with Steve Angello.

I hope you guys are ready for a monster, cause Max Vangeli just unleashed the force with his tune “Last Night Changed It All,” complete with a video treatment released exclusively on Billboard today. If you’ve been wondering what Steve Angello, 1/3 of Swedish House Mafia, has been up to, you now know, he’s been developing his roster of artists at Size Records. This is a must listen!

It first got a lot of buzz March last year with a live premier by AN21 in Montreal on the One Last Tour, and then a radio premier on Steve Angello’s essential mix, but has since remained largely dormant. AN21 himself has been pretty quiet since his 2012 album “People Of The Night” alongside Max Vangeli, but this year has stated he will be bringing more music and more solo efforts. Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman had a late surge in 2013 with their “POTN” remix and then “Silver Sun”, but have just been waiting on tracks to be released, like the all too often requested “Payback” alongside the bossman himself, Steve Angello.
“Rebel” is the next best thing with an upbeat progressive sound with well crafted builds and crescendoes grounded in a punchy bass line and rumbling horn. Man would it be crazy to be able to listen to Steve Angello’s hard drive for a few hours, the unreleased treasures he must have in there, one cannot even begin to imagine.
Beatport: AN21, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman – Rebel

It has been close to a year since “Rebel” was first premiered by AN21 on the One Last Tour in Montreal and then received its first radio play from Steve Angello on his essential mix later that month. Both AN21 & Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman had quiet years in 2013 on the release front, concentrating on DJ sets and getting plenty of music ready for 2014. For Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman “Rebel” is only the beginning of what should be their best year yet that will include “Payback” alongside Steve Angello, which may come sooner than you know. The full version of “Rebel” will hit Beatport on January 20th courtesy of Size Records. Not a fan of modern art, but the artwork on this track is pretty baller. Big ups Size.

The opening track of Size label boss Steve Angello’s sets over the past few months, “Ulysses” has the power and dexterity you expect from a release on Size. As the owner of the increasingly influential Megaton Records, Mike Hawkins becomes a bigger name in dance music, and here he teams up with Pablo Oliveros Marcus Schossow to create a bouncy bass line and long, riveting melodic builds. The Scandinavian connection is strong here with 2 Danes and 1 Swede on the track.
